My husband and I visited the Lake House a week ago. What an incredibly beautiful nostalgic place. Gene was in a rocking chair in the foyer and regaled us with stories of the "ghosts" upstairs, the history of the Lake House and local history. As a child my grandparents owned a camp almost directly across the lake. Also as a child, we moved to Ct and just this past year moved back. This was my first visit to the Lake House. (We're going back tonight for dinner and the Elvis concert, rain and wind forecast and all!)
The Inn has kept true to its historical era with the wall coverings, carpets and period furniture. The old magazines and newspapers others have complained about are laid in the foyer on the table. We got goose bumps reading the actual story of the JFK assassination in the newspaper of the next day!The original newspaper! The magazines are all from the "good old days!"
Gene and Chris are truly delightful hosts. Chris personally came to each table of diners to inquire as to our meals and to chat.
I could spend an hour raving about our meal! Oh, my it was incredible!
Gene was amazing, friendly, funny and informative.
This place is truly from a (sadly) by gone era. They just don't exist anymore.It feels like a cherished family home, and you feel like you belong there.
If you are accustomed to fast, impersonal service, want to be left alone, don't appreciate your hosts friendly welcoming attitudes, this is NOT the place for you. If you want to be transported back to a bygone era, or give your kids a glimpse of what life used to be like, this is a place you MUST NOT miss!
